This Nest outdoor camera was easily installed using external Cat6 cable, powered from a socket in the garage. The camera notifies you via the brilliant Nest app whenever it detects someone at the front door, movement, or even sound (if you live in a quiet area!).
Nest is owned by Google so you know it is designed to be user-friendly, has baked-in automatic updates, feature-rich, excellent video quality, 2-way audio so you can hear and also talk to someone outside.
The camera works on the homes WiFi, so a decent WiFi signal is a requirement in order for it to be reliable and trouble free. (We upgrade WiFi systems too).
This camera was installed to supplement an existing cctv system, as the client just wanted that extra peace-of-mind that the house was capable of recording everyone that came into the property, and would notify them via their smartphone Nest app.
Average cost for an installation like this is £162 for the camera and £250 for the installation and a few basic materials.
